Ruby Gentile made it out of the foster care system by keeping to herself and counting down the days until she was on her own. She considers herself a successful realtor now and loves that she is doing her part to put people in their forever home. Commitment issues often remind her she may never find what she always wanted as a little girl even if she secretly dreams of love and romance, happy ever after and prince charming... that forever home of her own. Josh Turner lived through the horrific murder of his parents while he hid in the closet as a young child. He's an investigator now sworn to protect, but those he loved... he couldn't bear the thought of life without them.

This book will help you to enjoy Mexican cuisine, treat yourself to spicy dishes and at the same time, effectively lose weight. Mexican cuisine is very diverse and incredibly tasty. Most of the recipes in this book can be cooked by beginners, since the book describes in details each stage of cooking. The peculiarity of the keto diet is that a person loses weight due to fat loss. That is, unlike most popular diets, muscle mass in people who observe this principle of nutrition remains the same. Essential in a keto diet are fats that make up to 75% of the diet. Then follow proteins - 20%. Finally, carbohydrates, whose amount is 5% of the total mass of products. It means that your diet should include avocado, fish, meat, seafood, eggs, nuts, and high-fat dairy products. Carbohydrates are the primary source of energy for the body. When their level in the body diminishes, this triggers an active processing of fats. The diet does not limit the time of eating to the standard 18:00 - you can eat at any time, but, of course, within reasonable limits. The recipe includes: • picture • nutrition facts • description • ingredients • cooking instructions Happy Cooking! Don't wait any longer! Scroll up and click the buy now button

Forgotten Woman: The South African Story by A Woman of Stature Collection 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 5 hours ago

For many women in South Africa, the Covid-19 pandemic and the ensuing lockdown arrived like a tsunami, barrelling down upon unsuspecting mothers, wives, and sisters who may well have been barely maintaining a precarious balance before that wall came crashing down. Although certain forms of financial assistance have been tabled, there are women who fall between the cracks, and they are very near drowning. The Woman of Stature Foundation wanted to throw these women a lifeline, and so, patrons, members and directors of the organisation-those who may once have been The Forgotten Women, rose up. The Forgotten Women-The South African Story is a collection of 15 contributions from some of South Africa's most successful women. As they share their journeys from pain and despair to success and self-love, the raw emotion and indomitable spirit of South African women springs off the pages. Tale after tale of humble beginnings, pain, loss, struggle, and overcoming it all, will twine around your heart, and spark inspiration within you. By sharing these stories we hope to have a dual impact. Firstly, all proceeds from the book will go toward assisting women who have been impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic, and, secondly, we believe that these stories of triumph in the darkest of times will inspire many more Forgotten Women to rise up.

Those Demented Children: Gavrilo Princip and the Plot against Franz Ferdinand by Paul Harris (Amber Publications) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 4 hours ago

In the summer of 1914, as overburdened diplomats anxiously bustled between the capital cities of Europe, the Serbian government asked the world how it was that they could be held responsible for the actions of "those demented children" of Austrian territory. Those "children" were a group of Bosnian activists called the Young Bosnians, belonging to a former Ottoman colony that had recently been annexed by Austria-Hungary, and who one sunny June day assassinated Franz Ferdinand, the Heir to the Austro-Hungarian Empire, so providing the pretext for the First World War and the resultant carnage. This is the story of those "children", their influences and the times in which they lived. Although much of the narrative is drawn from documented historical events and most of the characters retain their original names and actions, their words and motives have, in many cases, been contrived in order to drive a hypothesis that is neither original nor completely implausible. In fact, conspiracy theories have forever shadowed the events here represented.

Student Misconceptions and Errors in Physics and Mathematics: Exploring Data from TIMSS and TIMSS Advanced (IEA Research for Education Book 9) by Teresa Neidorf (Springer) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 4 hours ago

This open access report explores the nature and extent of students' misconceptions and misunderstandings related to core concepts in physics and mathematics and physics across grades four, eight and 12. Twenty years of data from the IEA's Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) and TIMSS Advanced assessments are analyzed, specifically for five countries (Italy, Norway, Russian Federation, Slovenia, and the United States) who participated in all or almost all TIMSS and TIMSS Advanced assessments between 1995 and 2015. The report focuses on students' understandings related to gravitational force in physics and linear equations in mathematics. It identifies some specific misconceptions, errors, and misunderstandings demonstrated by the TIMSS Advanced grade 12 students for these core concepts, and shows how these can be traced back to poor foundational development of these concepts in earlier grades. Patterns in misconceptions and misunderstandings are reported by grade, country, and gender. In addition, specific misconceptions and misunderstandings are tracked over time, using trend items administered in multiple assessment cycles. The study and associated methodology may enable education systems to help identify specific needs in the curriculum, improve inform instruction across grades and also raise possibilities for future TIMSS assessment design and reporting that may provide more diagnostic outcomes.

Such Unfortunates by Andrew Mann 4.5 Stars (127 Reviews)    Price verified 4 hours ago

Each year, more Americans die of drug abuse than the total of those who perished during the Vietnam War. This is the true story of an addict who was able to overcome his addiction against all odds. Andrew's life began in an upper-class town of Moorestown, New Jersey. His family had a million-dollar beach house, he attended college and even had the rare opportunity of driving a Ferrari around South Florida. His life seemed normal on the outside, but the internal turmoil he was experiencing was a horrific ordeal. Behind what seemed like an idyllic life was a nightmare of abuse, mental illness, and torment that no child should ever face. This led Andrew to suffer from pain, anxiety, panic attacks, and depression. Searching for relief, he found solace in drugs and became quickly addicted to anything that would change the way he felt. His addiction to drugs took him to such extremes as working for the DEA while being high on drugs, multiple rehabs, jails, becoming homeless, and even to the point of being considered dead. When all hope was lost, people he considers "angels" entered his life. One person, in particular, refused to give up on him even when everyone told her this was the best option. Through her determination, he was able to find the strength to look inside and find the real reasons for his addiction. Once he understood these reasons, he was finally able to figure out how to stay clean and successfully turned his life around. This book will give hope to anyone who is suffering from addiction or knows someone who is facing the adversity of addiction. It will show them why they should never give up and how working together, we can beat this opiate epidemic.

The Governing-Evaluation-Knowledge Nexus: Swedish Higher Education as a Case (Evaluating Education: Normative Systems and Institutional Practices) by Christina Segerholm (Springer) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 4 hours ago

This Open Access book analyses the interplay between governing, evaluation and knowledge with an empirical focus on Swedish higher education. It investigates the origins, logics, and mechanisms of evaluation and quality assurance reforms and their dynamic interactions with institutional, national and European policy contexts. The chapters report findings from extensive empirical studies that offer detailed insight into the work of governing in higher education, by giving voice to actors at various levels and positions including the ministry, national agency and University employees. Central themes include the influence of European policy, changing system designs, media relations and quality assurance enactments in University institutions.

The Boys from Old Florida: Inside Gator Nation by Buddy Martin (Sports Publishing) 3.4 Stars (4 Reviews)    Price verified 4 hours ago

In The Boys from Old Florida, Buddy Martin takes the reader beneath the surface of Florida football as, without bias or sugar coating, he skillfully excavates the truths behind "The Gator Nation." In this book, Martin, a Florida native, has chronicled the real stories of Gator coaches and players through their own eyes and in their words over a 55-year period since 1950 -- and not all are valentines. The school asked all but one of the coaches interviewed to leave or move up. Some players became estranged or never really felt appreciated. Yet, others are forever grateful for their experience as Gator players and feel a sense of brotherhood. Liberating moments such as the arrival of Ray Graves come to life through the words of somebody who experienced it firsthand. Martin's fresh investigations have bolstered his sharp memory of those moments as they unfolded, including Graves's firing after a fairy tale season with his "Super Sophs."

'The Rise of the "Democratic" Socialist Fourth Reich' ("History of the Deep State Volume 3") is here. This is the long-awaited third book written & published in the History of the Deep State trilogy and series by Jeremy Stone. While Volumes 1 & 2 extensively covered the complete history and hidden Agenda's behind the Deep State, Volume 3 takes a glimpse into what this radical new group, calling themselves "Democratic Socialists", are planning & plotting against America. Who are they? What are their intentions? Why is this radical agenda emerging globally now? Where did they come from? Who put them into power? Are they truly connected to the 3rd Reich, with a new agenda? Are their radical Climate Change & Green New Deal agenda's just a scare tactic or a threat? Why are these self-described "Pro-Democracy" Socialists simultaneously planning a secret coup against the President, while offering an anti-American & enhanced Socialist form of Government now? It is not a coincidence, and the length of time the Shadow Government has waited for this period in time will astound you.

Someone Special by S.K. Dinning 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 4 hours ago

REVIEWS: "Really well written, amusing and uplifting. An inspiring story!" - Katie Fforde, No. 1 Sunday Times bestselling author of Recipe for Love, A French Affair and The Perfect Match. "It certainly is funny." - Anna King, BBC Radio Gloucestershire "This is Fabulous!" - Hayley Goleniowska, Britmums Special Needs Round-Up "The author takes what must have been hideously embarrassing real life events and turns them into tales that make you want to chuckle and even laugh out loud." - Robin Jenkins, Gloucestershire Echo. "Downright hilarious." - Closer Magazine. Admittedly, that last comment is actually from a review of a different, far more successful memoir, but that does not mean it is not valid. As far as I know, nobody from Closer Magazine has actually read 'Someone Special' so we cannot be certain that they did not like it, and if they did, they would probably have written "Down-right hilarious" if it had occurred to them. (All the other reviews are real though) BOOK DESCRIPTION: Jamie has Down's syndrome, autistic spectrum disorder and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. He is a beautiful, charming and lovable little boy, but he is also - how can we put this? - an exceptionally "challenging" child. In this hilarious, heart-warming and unforgettable memoir, Jamie's long-suffering dad shares a selection of side-splitting and occasionally poignant stories from Jamie's unconventional childhood. Find out why he can never go back to his local library, and why the staff at his local swimming pool flinch whenever he arrives. The author also offers his own witty take on all sorts of topics connected to the subject of disability, and parenthood in general. This book will be adored by anyone who has ever known someone with special needs, or has ever been a parent, or indeed, has ever learned how to read. FROM THE AUTHOR: There are only so many times that you can hear people say "You should write a book about Jamie" before you eventually ...

Preparing for Life in a Digital Age: The IEA International Computer and Information Literacy Study International Report by Julian Fraillon (Springer) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 5 hours ago

Ability to use information and communication technologies (ICT) is an imperative for effective participation in today's digital age. Schools worldwide are responding to the need to provide young people with that ability. But how effective are they in this regard? The IEA International Computer and Information Literacy Study (ICILS) responded to this question by studying the extent to which young people have developed computer and information literacy (CIL), which is defined as the ability to use computers to investigate, create and communicate with others at home, school, the workplace and in society. The study was conducted under the auspices of the International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA) and builds on a series of earlier IEA studies focusing on ICT in education. Data were gathered from almost 60,000 Grade 8 students in more than 3,300 schools from 21 education systems. This information was augmented by data from almost 35,000 teachers in those schools and by contextual data collected from school ICT-coordinators, school principals and the ICILS national research centers. The IEA ICILS team systematically investigated differences among the participating countries in students' CIL outcomes, how participating countries were providing CIL-related education and how confident teachers were in using ICT in their pedagogical practice. The team also explored differences within and across countries with respect to relationships between CIL education outcomes and student characteristics and school contexts. In general, the study findings presented in this international report challenge the notion of young people as "digital natives" with a self-developed capacity to use digital technology. The large variations in CIL proficiency within and across the ICILS countries suggest it is naive to expect young people to develop CIL in the absence of coherent learning programs. Findings also indicate that system- and school-level planning ...

Early Childhood Policies and Systems in Eight Countries: Findings from IEA's Early Childhood Education Study by Tony Bertram (Springer) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 4 hours ago

This report provides an overview of policy strategies on early childhood education settings (from birth to primary schooling) in eight countries. Data were collected using a policy questionnaire addressed to and completed by the National Research Coordinator(s) (NRC) of Chile, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Italy, Poland, the Russian Federation and the United States. The countries that participated provide interesting illustrations of early childhood education policy in action in a range of diverse contexts. Analysis of the systemic and structural results of ECE policy at national and, where necessary, subnational levels, enables transnational comparisons in policy and systems. Key policy changes, both underway and planned, are documented. These data reveal key findings in each of the five policy areas as covered in the questionnaire and this report: public policy; delivery models and providers; participation and enrollment; quality assurance systems; and expectations for child outcomes. In particular, the study aims to provide meaningful information for countries, states and jurisdictions across the world in relation to early childhood education, mapping the systems, structures and user pathways in place, along with the perceptions of stakeholders about the system, its functioning and impact. This comprehensive assessment of the wider policy contexts and settings for early childhood education includes teacher/practitioner qualifications, pedagogy approaches, and opportunities for professional development. Such information will enable countries to review their early childhood education systems in an international context.

Vessel Health and Preservation: The Right Approach for Vascular Access by Nancy L. Moureau (Springer) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 5 hours ago

This Open access book offers updated and revised information on vessel health and preservation (VHP), a model concept first published in poster form in 2008 and in JVA in 2012, which has received a great deal of attention, especially in the US, UK and Australia. The book presents a model and a new way of thinking applied to vascular access and administration of intravenous treatment, and shows how establishing and maintaining a route of access to the bloodstream is essential for patients in acute care today. Until now, little thought has been given to an intentional process to guide selection, insertion and management of vascular access devices (VADs) and by default actions are based on crisis management when a quickly selected VAD fails. The book details how VHP establishes a framework or pathway model for each step of the patient experience, intentionally guiding, improving and eliminating risk when possible. The evidence points to the fact that reducing fragmentation, establishing a pathway, and teaching the process to all stakeholders reduces complications with intravenous therapy, improves efficiency and diminishes cost. As such this book appeals to bedside nurses, physicians and other health professionals.

Global Perspectives on Recognising Non-formal and Informal Learning: Why Recognition Matters (Technical and Vocational Education and Training: ... by Madhu Singh (Springer) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 4 hours ago

This book deals with the relevance of recognition and validation of non-formal and informal learning education and training, the workplace and society. In an increasing number of countries, it is at the top of the policy and research agenda ranking among the possible ways to redress the glaring lack of relevant academic and vocational qualifications and to promote the development of competences and certification procedures which recognise different types of learning, including formal, non-formal and informal learning. The aim of the book is therefore to present and share experience, expertise and lessons in such a way that enables its effective and immediate use across the full spectrum of country contexts, whether in the developing or developed world. It examines the importance of meeting institutional and political requirements that give genuine value to the recognition of non-formal and informal learning; it shows why recognition is important and clarifies its usefulness and the role it serves in education, working life and voluntary work; it emphasises the importance of the coordination, interests, motivations, trust and acceptance by all stakeholders. The volume is also premised on an understanding of a learning society, in which all social and cultural groups, irrespective of gender, race, social class, ethnicity, mental health difficulties are entitled to quality learning throughout their lives. Overall the thrust is to see the importance of recognising non-formal and informal learning as part of the larger movement for re-directing education and training for change. This change is one that builds on an equitable society and economy and on sustainable development principles and values such as respect for others, respect for difference and diversity, exploration and dialogue.

This is Volume 1 of the collected works of The Chimping Dandy. Author, Blogger, Humourist, Flashtronaut and lover of Pangolins (But not in that way). There are Seventy-Five stories representing nearly a year of irreverent writing, on such various themes as Polar Bears, Motorcycling, Lego, Physical Injuries to Myself, and The Paranormal (WoOoOoOoOoOo), which are guaranteed to make you laugh on the bus, or the train, or the aeroplane, or the toilet... Well, at least smile... Well, perhaps get people to ask whether you've got indigestion at least. Almost all of the stories have a basis in truth, although a number have been edited to add some much needed pathos, bathos and custard. (and for spelling... Mostly for spelling.) Should you buy this book? Well of course you should, I went to the trouble of writing it, then publishing it on the Kindle, If you're amazingly rich, you could buy it as a real book that you can use for swatting flies or propping up a wonky table or dropping in the bath - I'll even sign and number it for you for the price of the return postage, and possibly write a pithy epithet too, if that's what your heart desires. (In fact, if you buy the real, paper book, you can download the Kindle version for free and gratis! As a discerning reader, the least you can do is hit the 'Buy this truly splendid Kindle book' button. (Your button may actually be named differently, but it should be around somewhere. Try the corners, they sometimes like to hide the button in the corners.) It's not like you need the money... Well, you might need the money, but I need the money more, if I wasn't starving, I couldn't really call myself an artist could I? I have children, and they have mouths that need feeding. Not buying this book literally takes bread from my children's mouths, and they kind of like bread.

Magnet Fishing Masterclass is the first book of its kind to reveal the secrets of success in this fast-growing, urban hobby. Whether you are a complete beginner, just starting out or a long time, experienced magneteer, this book contains a wealth of practical information for everyone. It begins with an important section on the most effective equipment, not only the magnets themselves, but also ropes, gloves and a beneficial range of other useful kit. It even provides an interesting background chapter on neodymium, and where this fascinating Rare Earth element originates. Safety and legality are extremely important topics in this nascent pastime, especially if we want it to remain relatively unregulated.

The Sources of Anti-Slavery Constitutionalism in America, 1760-1848 by William M. Wiecek (Cornell University Press) 5.0 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified 4 hours ago

This ambitious book examines the constitutional and legal doctrines of the antislavery movement from the eve of the American Revolution to the Wilmot Proviso and the 1848 national elections. Relating political activity to constitutional thought, William M. Wiecek surveys the antislavery societies, the ideas of their individual members, and the actions of those opposed to slavery and its expansion into the territories. He shows that the idea of constitutionalism has popular origins and was not the exclusive creation of a caste of lawyers. In offering a sophisticated examination of both sides of the argument about slavery, he not only discusses court cases and statutes, but also considers a broad range of "extrajudicial" thought -- political speeches and pamphlets, legislative debates and arguments.

Great American Lives: The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin, Personal Memoirs of Ulysses S. Grant, Autobiography of Andrew Carnegie, and The ... by Benjamin Franklin (Open Road Media) 5.0 Stars (3 Reviews)    Price verified 4 hours ago

Brilliant, captivating, and unforgettable memoirs from four of the greatest minds in American history. Penned between 1771 and 1790 and published after his death, TheAutobiography of Benjamin Franklin is one of the most acclaimed and widely read personal histories ever written. From his youth as a printer's assistant working for his brother's Boston newspaper through his own publishing, writing, and military careers, his scientific experiments and worldwide travels, his grand triumphs and heartbreaking tragedies, Franklin tells his story with aplomb, bringing to life the flesh-and-blood man behind the American icon. Completed just days before his death, Ulysses S. Grant's Personal Memoirs is a clear and compelling account of his military career, focusing on two great conflicts: the Mexican-American War and the Civil War. Lauded for its crisp and direct prose, Grant's autobiography offers frank insight into everything from the merits of the war with Mexico to the strategies and tactics employed by Union forces against the Confederacy to the poignancy of Grant's meeting with General Lee at Appomattox Court House. Documenting a world of tariffs, insider deals, and Wall Street sharks as well as his stunning rise from bobbin boy to steel baron, The Autobiography of Andrew Carnegie opens a window into the great industrialist's decision-making process. His insights on education, business, and the necessity of giving back for the common good set an inspirational example for aspiring executives and provide a fitting testament to the power of the American dream. The Education of Henry Adams is the Pulitzer Prize-winning memoir of a brilliant man reckoning with an era of profound change. The great-grandson of President John Adams and the grandson of President John Quincy Adams, Henry Adams possessed one of the most remarkable minds of his generation. Yet he believed himself fundamentally unsuited to the era in which he lived -- the tumultuous period between the ...

The Not So Great American Novel by James Doucette (James E. Doucette) 4.4 Stars (18 Reviews)    Price verified 22 hours ago

The "Great American Novel" was a concept illustrating the essence of a generation and its defining influences. Jim Doucette represents an American dream realized, although his journey to the 'Great American' ideal was at times, simply, 'Not-So-Great.' Jim invites us to look at this Dream through an era of post-war time, arising commerce, and the technology boom of cable television. In his entertaining memoir, he shares his journey from the farmlands of Maine to the streets of Brooklyn in the 1940s and 50s, and later reveals the backstage life of the cable television industry. Jim's unabashed style unveils the truth of politics in business, the tug-of-war between success and family, and the deeper, spiritual threads of life that inspired him. In this age of progress, The Not-So-Great American Novel is a refreshingly forthright narrative of irony and wisdom that will enlighten generations to come.
